Beverly is a soft, highly textured hat knit in a cozy merino-cashmere blend. A slip stitch contrast color creates little stained glass windows peeking out from between the architectural ribs that lead up the hat to the crown. Pick two contrasting colors for a hat that is both wearable and lovely. The hat pictured is shown deliberately unblocked, which makes for a shallow, highly textured beanie. Beverly can be blocked longer, or shaped into a tam by blocking over a plate.
